Book Review: Sweet Legacy by Tera Lynn Childs

Sweet Legacy
Author: Tera Lynn Childs
Series: Sweet Venom (Book 3)
Publication: Katherine Tegen Books (September 3, 2013)

Description: The stunning conclusion of Tera Lynn Childs's Greek mythology–based Sweet Venom trilogy is perfect for teen fans of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series.

The girls cannot hesitate as they seek the location of the lost door between the realms, even as monsters and the gods of Olympus descend on San Francisco in battle-ready droves.

Greer must use her second sight to step up and prevent anything from stopping her sisters' mission, even though a god is playing with her mind. Grace wants to trust her adopted brother, Thane; but will his secret put the girls in even more danger? And Gretchen has trained her sisters to stop the monsters, but her role as a huntress comes with more responsibility than she ever imagined.What will the girls' immortal legacy be? Three teenage descendants of Medusa must unite to restore balance to the world in this action-packed series with plenty of romance.

My Thoughts: SWEET LEGACY is the final book in the trilogy begun in SWEET VENOM. Grace, Greer, and Gretchen have lots to do before opening the door that they are meant to guard. They need to rescue their mentors, find their boyfriends and learn their secrets, and find the door that they are meant to open and guard. Hordes of Greek gods and monsters are trying to stop them.

Greer gets a better grip on her ability of second sight once she manages to break the link with Apollo that lets him know where she is and what she is doing. Since he's one of the gods who don't want the girls to succeed, this is vital to the success of their mission.

Gretchen learns that monsters are not all bad as she makes friends with some while she is in Abyssos trying to rescue her boyfriend and her mentors. Grace finds her confidence and her courage as she searches for the girls' birth mother and faces other tests.

After they manage to unravel the riddle left by the oracle and find where the door is hidden, they have to gather their allies before facing a big battle.

The story was action-packed and filled with adventure. It was also a great story about family especially the kind of family you make. I liked the way the sisters respected each other's strengths and the way they meshed given that they were just getting to know each other.

I recommend this book and this series to fans of mythology and urban fantasy.

Favorite Quote:
"I don't deserve you," he insists.

"No one does," I reply with a confident smile. "You''ll get used to the feeling."

He laughs -- actually laughs -- and I feel it all the way in my toes. 
I bought this one. You can buy your copy here.
